"In Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Adolescents With Multiple Problems, Alec L. Miller demonstrates this compassionate, principle-based therapy for clients who have difficulty regulating emotions and behaviors. Emotional dysregulation is common among adolescents, often leading them to self-injurious behavior, including suicide. Studies have shown that dialectical behavior therapy can significantly reduce suicide attempts and help adolescent clients deal with multiple problems. In this session, Dr. Miller works with a 17-year-old boy who is depressed, abusing marijuana, and who has recently contemplated suicide. Dr. Miller highlights the client's strengths while trying to obtain commitment to treatment in order to reduce his depression and marijuana use and build a life worth living. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a compassionate, principle-based psychotherapy for suicidal multiproblem, multidiagnostic individuals who have significant difficulty regulating emotions and behaviors. Developed by Marsha Linehan, DBT was first introduced over a dozen years ago as a treatment for suicidal and self-injurious individuals diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD)"--Container.

Multidimensional family therapy ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 49 libraries worldwide
"Howard A. Liddle demonstrates this integrative, empirically supported approach for working with families of adolescents with behavior and substance abuse problems. Multidimensional family therapy (MDFT) protocols guide therapists in assessing and intervening simultaneouly in developmentally critical domains of a teen's and family's life. Emotions, cognitive processes, and behavior are interconnected and are all addressed in MDFT. Adolescent problems such as drug abuse and delinquency are all multidimensional in etiology and current manifestation, and therefore attempted remedies and therapists behavior must be multidimensional as well. As a multisystems model, MDFT clinicians work individually with the adolescent and the parent, with the family as a whole to facilitate new relationships, and with family members in relation to sources of ongoing influence such as school and juvenile justice systems to address current functioning and new solutions for the adolescent. In this session, Dr. Liddle works with a 15-year old boy, recently diagnosed with ADHD and depression, who seeks a better relationship with his father.

Typically, these perfectionist standards are applied to oneself. In this series of six sessions, Dr. Antony works with a young woman who is completing a graduate degree in psychology. She strives for perfection in many areas, including her school work and her family life. She is overly concerned with organizing, planning, and succeeding at everything she does, and also has occasional panic attacks and issues concerning her body image.
